Which Decoys to get?

Postby kyfowler » Mon Dec 05, 2005 5:08 pm

i want to buy some mallard field decoys. i was either going to buy a dozen G&H shells or 8 Enticers. i wanted to try to stay around $100. i don't see many ducks in the field i hunt but i do see a few. last season while goose hunting the field i was working six mallards but thet would never commit to the goose deeks. they just kept circling out of range.

I added an extra option being now you have the main 3 field decoys listed.

But there still are the silos too that Real Geese and Outlaw make.

thanks Admin2 for the addition. i am really not lookin for silos because the cround is always frozen and i didn't want to buy a silo hammer. IMO shells or full bodies would be easier to set up.

The question comes down to does one have the room for full badies. They are great, but are bulky. The shells are more compact. I personally always stake my shells to give them better visability and add the shadow lines as a standing duck would have.

I use G&H shells myself becuase I use FB goose decoys which take up enough room already.

As for location, put the duck decoys upwind of the goose decoys for a great double winning spread.

Well I know I wouldn't get the Flam. Enticers because the paint will fall off of them faster then the ducks you are shooting. I think I would go with the GHG's because they look awsome and they give you movement to your spread :thumbsup:

I would go with the GHG all the way. The are by far the best looking and the movement adds alot to your spread. They are a bit pricey but they make up for it in realism. The size of them is great as well...for me at least since we do not have to work overly far to our spots. The only thing I did not like was in a normal dek bag they rubbed together and traded some paint with each other, so I got the 12 slot bag, and the problem was solved.

To tell you the truth I really dont think it matters what kind of field decoys you have as long as you have movement in your decoys, but I wouldnt want to pay a whole lot extra for decoys we think look better. Just get some cheap enticers and invest in a flag.

GHG FB mallards. You have realism and motion. It's like 80-90 bucks for a 1/2 doz but well worth it. I've got a doz and bought a 12 slotted bag to carry them in.

When putting in silo on frozen ground I use cordless electic drill with an auger type wood bit, you can find them all rusty at yard sales for small cost, They don't have to be sharp for cutting dirt. Works for me. :salude:

Heres what I did since i was having touble with my lifesize ghg mallards. I just drilled a whole in the bottom so you could but the stakes you get for windsocks and it fit really well. So now we have a dozen shells that only cost 50.

I voted GHG full bodies....they look great, but they do require some space. I would get the G&H shells if space is an issue. Just my 2 pennies. :thumbsup:

Edit: I have seen the HC decoys...WOW....they look great, but as mentioned above...you pay for it!! :eek:

What's the word with the Big Foot ducks that are coming out in 2007? I've been holding onto a few bucks thinking they might have something that will match the ghg full bodies. Also, I like the Eberhart full body ducks. $100 a dozen is a deal.
